Just three games into the National Basketball Association season, Dwyane Wade has decided he'd be better served coming off the bench for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Lue said Wade thought it was best for the team to come off the bench.

With Wade heading to the bench, J.R. Smith will be added back to the starting lineup. "He's been a starter for his whole career, so we wanted to try to start him".

"I just decided earlier than later to get to the unit I'd be more comfortable in". Get the app and get the game.

According to Lue, it was Wade who approached him about making the move, which will reinsert J.R. Smith as the Cavs' shooting guard. J.R.is now averaging 6.3 points and 2.7 rebounds on 33.3% shooting.

Wade has started in 907 of the 918 regular season games he's appeared in and all of the 172 postseason games he's played. "I was really emotionally drained at that point". I was told he's going to be great for the second unit.It would be a great fit for the team, whatever, whatever.

The Cavaliers are 2-1 through three games and Tuesday they will face one of Wade's former teams, the Bulls.
